I am learning alot about scope mount systems and my rifle has the Redfield system with the front dovetail/rear windage screw. Some people have problems with the rear windage screws coming loose when shooting. My caliber is a 30 06 on a fairly heavy rifle and was wondering if this is going to be a problem. I don't want to change anything if I don't have to. Here is a pic:

I have a .30-06 that has had the same type of base (although one piece) for more than 20 years. Never have seen the windage screws come loose. Some threadlocker on the screws might ease any worries that you have?

I have also used the same type of mounts on many rifles for many years with zero problems. I have never had a screw come loose (at least, not on my scope mounts!).

I would like to bump this since there are people claiming to have the rear ring come clean off the base when shooting. It is mostly from heavy magnum calibers, but I did hear of one on a .308.
